In the February 2019 installment of NAAEE's monthly webinar series, we heard from a team at World Resources Institute to learn about how to use their online Resource Watch platform to tell data-driven stories, connect with real-world events, and share valuable open data with students. Resource Watch features hundreds of free and reliable data sets that cover the state of the planet’s resources, commerce and people. The platform lets you dive into near real-time data, explore by topic, and create your own custom content.

Resource Watch is a program of the World Resources Institute. WRI is a global research organization that turns big ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity and human well-being.
